Polar Horizons 2021

Improving the Diversity of UK Polar Science

The Polar Horizons Initiative, funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office, builds new connections and collaborations between the UK Polar Science community and those from currently underrepresented groups, particularly BAME, LGBTQ+ and Disabled.


Applications close on the 25th of January 2021.

What does the programme look like?
The 2020 programme was disrupted by Covid immediately after its launch day but what were best laid plans were able to be maximised using online outreach and connection between the students and the host scientists online. We will replicate the success of the program by running the 2021 program completely online. It will launch with 4 days of intensive networking and exploring Polar research opportunities from the 2nd – 5th March 2021.
